Jason Statham as the Sub-Mariner?

In an interview with IESB, Jason Statham, man of action that he is, mentions that he recently “took a meeting” for the upcoming “Sub-Mariner” comic book movie. That, and between dropping the “F-bomb” every other sentence, the guy talks about his other movies, including “The Bank Job”, “Crank 2″, and “Transporter 3″. But let’s get back to that “Sub-Mariner” angle…

Statham: Let me think… It’s funny, I took a meeting for Sub-Mariner. I don’t know if I’d look right running around in a tight speedo with wings on my ankles but there’s so many cool fucking characters. The Hulk, I’ve always been a big fan of but Ed Norton’s doing that. And rightly so. He’s fucking amazing. And he’s working with Louis Leterrier, believer it or not who did The Transporter. I’m trying to think of what would be a good comic book character for me to play. You know, there’s talk of them redoing The Crow. That was a good movie with Brandon Lee, although that was years ago. So if that one comes my way, bang! You know, there’s so many comic book movies out there and most of the time there’s only a handful of people who can do them any justice. Hopefully, they’ll come my way for one of them.

So he took and meeting and stuff. You know, I can actually see him being Namor the Sub-Mariner. God knows the guy has the physique for it. But a remake of “The Crow”? God, please say it ain’t so, Hollywood…
